The Cleveland Indians and Champion Windows will team to build a new broadcast booth at Progressive Field, with construction set for completion in May.
The booth, dubbed Champion Windows Studio, will be located adjacent to the RIDGID Jobsite Bar in center field. The studio will feature pregame and post-game programming on WTAM-AM 1100 for every home game, hosted primarily by Nick Camino and Bob Frantz. Select other Clear Channel programming also will be broadcast from Champion Windows Studio on Indians home game dates.
"We're excited to align our brand with the Cleveland Indians and Clear Channel's Indians coverage," said ANDY WIMSATT, Division Manager of Champion Windows. "Champion Windows Studio will be in a prime location at Progressive Field to show Tribe fans the quality of our products. This partnership also shows our commitment to the community by including a $25,000 donation component to benefit the youth the Cleveland Indians serve in Northeast Ohio."
As part of the agreement, Cleveland Indians Charities will partner with Champion Windows through its "Champions of Hope" outreach program, through which Champion will contribute $25,000 to CIC.
"Champion was adamant about including this charitable aspect in our partnership, which will help the Indians continued efforts to impact the Northeast Ohio community and the youth that live here," said REBECCA KODYSH, the Indians Executive Director of Community Impact.
